With this initiative, they directed the Portland Bureau of Transportation to develop autonomous vehicle policies and solicit proposals from companies that would test autonomous vehicles on Portland streets by the end of the year.
Mother Nature is helping Oregon celebrate the last two days of the Bike Commute Commute with beautiful, sunny autumn weather. If you didn't bike today, casual Friday is a great day to take in some fresh air on two wheels.
In celebration of one of the best Bike Commute Challenges ever, we thought we'd share a video of the future from Holland.
As you know, the the Dutch can teach Portlanders a thing or two about bicycling. They see no need for a minivan when you have a house full of kids. You just need an electric assist bike-powered bus.
Don't forget to log those bike trips! You can celebrate the BCC with the Bicycle Transportation Alliance at their Bike Commute Challenge awards party on Thursday, October 6, 5:30-7:30 at the Memorial Coliseum.
